, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the results already by the people that have come out early and that's why the campaigns spent so much time on getting out the vote early, this ground game on these early votes. >> pelley: we'll come back to you early and often. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. john is going to be showing us the various ways that the candidates can get to the 270 electoral votes necessary to twin presidency. john? >> well, first, scott, let's follow up on what bob was saying. we're going to dispatch with 41 of the states, the majority of the country cbs estimates based on the polling that those states are either going to go to barack obama or to mitt romney. that gives barack obama a start where he's likely to get 237 electoral votes, mitt romney is likely to get 191 electoral votes. so here we are at the beginning of the evening, nothing has been called, it's all possibility. so what is the easiest past for each candidate to get to that
legion and get to 270 electoral votes? give mitt romney florida, virginia, north carolina, colorado. his shortest path is to win those states. he would win a majority of the nine swing states and that gets him to 275, 263 for barack obama. he also needs for that scenario to win the state of ohio. tyler mentioned the cleveland airport today. what -- now, let's go back to this map again, put the swing states again in yellow and say, what is barack obama's shortest path? he just needs to win three of the nine swing states, those three, wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, ohio, the state we have just been talking about and also nevada, big harry reid's home state, the senate leader, big union vote, big hispanic vote there. if he gets those three things, barack obama gets to 271 electoral votes and wins, tyler. >> but not any three of those nine states? >> specifically those three. >> specifically those three. say it again, ohio, nevada -- >> ohio, wisconsin, nevada. if barack obama gets those three, can win every other swing state -- >> do the polls tell us that he is ahead in those three? >>
and we are still waiting on an official number from florida. it is obvious the state has not fixed its voting problems. as i'm sure you remember, it was florida 12 years ago causing the legal disaster between vice president al gore and president george bush. the difference this time, no one cares as much. president obama's victory was well secured without florida's 29 electoral votes. but for florida natives this is frustrating and all too familiar. the state's whole voting system is plagued by bad management and dysfunction. it is usually elected officials running the voting process rather than nonpartisan professionals to. make this system more efficient what florida needs now is better access to polling places and more absentee and early voting. >>> it's also affecting the congressional race. g.o.p. representative allen west is now demanding a recount. the election there is still too close to call. west is down just 3,000 votes against his democratic opponent patrick murphy. west is blaming a county supervisor for r
of time zones. on the eastern time zone with polls closing teen 7:00 and 8:30 in florida, the romney campaign think those safe. virginia a toss up. ohio, the crucial battleground state, both put more money and time in ohio than any state. romney campaign believes they have a shot in pennsylvania. romney and ryan are going to pittsburgh as we speak and to new hampshire, all the polls will close, first, and you can see each of them a key battleground state. and the question of the possibility of what happens later in the evening. romney campaign has set aside the emphasize on iowa and nevada where the president had a bit of an edge in the polls. they are particularly focused on colorado. romney campaign thinks colorado could be the opportunity west of the mississippi to pick up a key battleground state mountain time and late because of how close it is. historically, neither candidate has been able to break out of the polls longer than any time in the history of modern campaign, this is the closest we have seen. the amount of money is exceeding anything anyone imagined and a doesn't pos
healthcare to learn about medicare plans that may be right for you. call now. jenna: we've talked a lot about florida, also pennsylvania, but florida this campaign season. the electoral votes in florida at 29, more than any other battleground state, which is one of the reasons we've talked so often with steve voscay, the tallahassee bureau chief of the ""tampa bay times"." you've covered elections in your day, what strikes you about this one. >> it's back to the ground game and a high turn out for both candidates, both romney and obama, the rain has moved through here. the weather is improving. this could be the first election in florida where we break the 9 million vote barrier. there's never been 9 million or more people vote in anee collection and the secretary of state here this morning predicted a record turn out because more than 4.5 million people have already voted. jenna: wow. >> about hatch the votes are in the bag so to speak. jenna: 9 million passing that mark would be significant, because we're talking so much about voter turn out. to you, what are you watching the rest of the day as to
fighting for florida electoral votes it will be close. in 2008 president obama beat mccain. but it shows mitt romney is slightly ahead there. >> poll precinct workers are showing up first voters will line up. we are on the west side of the critical i-4 corridor. and the south florida miami-dade and brower tend to vote for democratic nominee and northern and panhandle a lock for the republican. and that's why the swing corridor is so critical. four years ago obama won boy 7 points and before that bush bet kerry by 7 points and there is a lot of enthusiasm and competition between mitt romney and president obama. early lines of and days of voters in broward and palm beach county and yesterday, another 45,000 early votes state wide and select counties allowed in person absentee ballot and technically and legally it was set to end 7:00 p.m. democrats filed suit and tried to extend the hours and governor scott never agreed to that and those were not extended. here are the early look. floridians. four and half million floridians have already voted in the presidential election . there is roughly
, florida still too close to call. but he has the electoral votes. he needs 274 to mitt romney's 243. both with 49%. only several hundred thousand votes now separating the president from mitt romney in the popular vote. he's clearly won the electoral vote and there's so much anticipation in chicago for his acceptance speech. >> the loser will come out and give the concession speech first. so, i'm sure president obama is awaiting mitt romney to accept forward and acknowledge he has been defeated and then president obama comes forward and says hopefully in a gracious way, that he has won. we are looking live at the stage in boston, as a matter of fact, where the crowd, a lot more subdued as you might expect is awaiting mitt romney to step forward and at some point i suspect soon, we will hear from the former governor of massachusetts who as we said is in boston. he will come forward to acknowledge he has been defeated despite running a very tough and hard campaign against an incumbent as has been noted many times, this is the first time since franklin roosevelt has been re-elected with unemp
an event today in ohio. he now heads to pennsylvania, virginia and florida. we have two new nbc wall street marist polls out for you. president obama holds a 6-point lead among likely voters in ohio. 51 to 45%. then in the sunshine state the president gets support of 49% from likely voters. mitt romney coming in with 47%. let's head to mentor, ohio where the president is holding a campaign stop. we're following very closely with nbc's chris janzen's help. chris a good day to you. let's get to what the president is saying in his final pitch to the ohio voters. why is he there in mentor, specifically? >> reporter: good afternoon, alex. there is one group, one reason why the president is here. he's white work class voters. it's a group where the president has been behind nationally, having a tough time getting to 40%. but it's closette here closest . five points separated him and mitt romney in working class voters. take a look at the statistics in mentor. i know this very well. i grew up in lake county. 95% white. $61,000 median income. that's about $10,000 above the national average. it's th
cain/palin campaign, steve schmidt? >> coming attraction. >> good tease. >> he's down in south florida. we also have mark haleprin, senior political analyst, and look at this, this is huge. >> we have michael steele. >> michael steele here. >> oh, my gosh. >> it's a great way to start. >> wow. >> great way to start six hours of coverage. >> thank you. >> we also have john heilemann, he's in chicago. >> yes, we do. >> do we have john heilemann. >> great. that's great. >> this is a fun game. >> throw out a name and see if they're here. >> we started this really well. >> you know, in major league baseball, t.j., getting 4 out of 5 right, you would be -- >> that's pretty good. >> it'll get you fired on election day. hey, everybody let's vote. fire t.j. okay. here we go. mika, the "new york times" talks about now it goes to the voters state-by-state, "usa today" talks about decision time. today's a huge day? >> yes, people are choosing on the direction of the country. >> yeah, what do you think? >> i think it'll be obama but it'll be close and that'll be good for everybody. >> okay. well, that's one day.
to more than one dozen states on the campaign trail. >> this will be a chance to be in florida. he was in virginia last night. he will keep coming back to the midwestern firewall we have talked about a lot. the math has suddenly shot down to the states they're both competing in. it has been amazing to watch them debt in and get out within hours of each other. and sending all their surrogates to the same place. voters are all too easy to have an election day concluded in those states. >> what are you looking for on election night? >> ls is mentioned new hampshire. -- alexis mentioned new hampshire. people are so independently minded. it all the other states that all the math works out or this is a close battle, a new hampshire could come into play. keep your eye on the state. people have a way of shocking you in going against the polls. >> david work is available online at politico.com. the lexus at realpolitics.com. >> you can see this later today at 6:00 p.m. eastern, 3 pacific. >> why would the john wilkes booth team want to assassinate william henry seward? >> this is been the s
for the coal fields. host: our last call is from florida. good evening. caller: i was just going to comment that i just can't believe how far right winged the republican party has become. i was watching a speech by richard nixon back in the 1950's and he was talking about national healthcare and they've just gone so far to the right where they really have zero social conscience and i'm hoping obama wins. he's talking about things that are important to the american citizen. being just a war machine taking over what great britain did prior to world war ii. host: what about in terms of campaign signs or people coming to your door and the tv and the advertising in florida? caller: we've had two door knocks. what is getting my goat is the synagogues here that were always democratic are now upset with obama's relationship with gnaten i can't had you and they feel like they're not going to be protected by the united states. our country protects israel and i don't get it. i run into so many people who are $40,000 republicans and mitt romney doesn't have their best interest at heart. host: your pred
overwhelmingly and when you add florida it was 332 to 206. that ain't close, folks. not only that. he won the popular vote. helex night. no doubt about who won. he won 8 out of 9 of the battle ground states. that was sweet enough. okay? but here is the deal: a lot of people very long lost sight of. the president's margin keeps growing and growing and growing every day it gets bigger and bigger. because there are so many votes that weren't counted on november 6th and as of this morning, there is still like a million and a half uncounted votes out there, which is a amazing. think about it. the election right in the almost a month old. >> yeah. >> still a million and a half votes. many of them like a million votes in new york state. % why? because of hurricane sandy and the presinks they had to use like paper ballots and they haven't been able to count them all. parts of new jersey most of those uncounted votes are up in the -- up in the northeast. so, as they are counting these votes t the president's total gets up and up and up. right now the count is t
if obama won and then fired people while they were still counting florida. who would have thought? (laughter) a prophecy fulfilled by the professor seer. like a weather man forecasting scattered showers and then running up on the roof and peeing on people. (laughter) "you're lucky i didn't call for hail!" (laughter) >> well, they left me no choice. we're going to see reduced economic activity in america. we're going to see reduced electric power consumption. we're going to see drastically reduced coal markets. >> jon: a greedy black-hearted man who owns a coal mine. well, now i've seen everything. (laughter) but it's not just those who provide compressed lumps of dead animals to fuel your home who are affected. (laughter) it's also those who provide compressed lumps of dead animals to fuel your body. >> our next guest says he might have to move some of his employees from full time to part time if president barack obama gets reelected. joining us now is zane tankel, he runs i think 42 applebee's franchises. >> jon: i'm going to stop you right there. zane tankel? (laughter) that's w
's making stops there every day between now and tuesday. he'll also be in virginia, florida, new hampshire, iowa, colorado and wisconsin over the next 96 hours. mitt romney will be in many of those same states over the next four days, although he's hitting pennsylvania and skipping florida. president obama was back on the trail yesterday after a three-day break to oversee the storm recovery. rallying to a crowd of 10,000 in colorado. the president made what some are saying was a jab at his opponent's tendency to change his mind. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you know me. you may not agree with every decision that i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change. i always remind people that when we did the auto bailout, only 10% of the country approved of it. including, by the way, folks in michigan and ohio. but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> mitt romney also returned to pre-hurricane attack mode yesterday. at a rally in virginia, romney blasted the

[applause] good morning, everybody. it is with great pride i'm going to introduce governor bush this morning. we met a over twenty five years ago, i don't think he has it on the rÉsume still, i was in tallahassee and i helped recruit move jeb to tallahassee in 1986 and i don't think he has forgiven me for that. but he was a secretary of commerce, as you may remember for a couple of years, and after i negotiated salary then governor elect renegotiated his salary not upward but downward, as it turns out that's why he doesn't like me. we blame friends as he served in the administration and in 1993, twenty years ago after coming off of the statewide campaign, jeb and i were playing golf in miami and we were went back to his house and i said, i think that running
the unemployment rates, nevada, 11.8%. colorado still 8%. wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, florida, iowa. look at iowa, 5.2%. it's essentially full employment in iowa but they are concerned about debt, deficit and the quality of jobs you are getting. let's start with the ohio jobless rates. no gop candidate won an election without winning ohio. ohio makes presidents. today, 7% is the unemployment rate, less than when the president took office. that is better than the national average. they have been adding manufacturing jobs. not as many by any stretch of the imagination that they lost. look at florida and the trend of the jobless rate in florida. it's exactly where it was when the president took office. still higher than the national average. it has been coming down. housing is still a major issue here. in virginia, 13 electoral votes, jobless rate is low now. a 5.9% in virginia. but, it's still higher than when the president took office. essentially flat in virginia. it's going to be interesting because superstorm sandy could have an effect. power outages there. we don't know what tues
think they're the only new yorkers who go to florida to visit their grandchildren. yeah. there are a lot of facts and figures and fun characters and colorful stories in this book, but i knew it would be controversial. ises is revisionist history of the obama stimulus, and just about everybody hates the obama stimulus, and sometimes it feels like obama hates it, too, and won't say the word stimulus anymore. it's hard to blame him. a year after the task a percentage of americans who believe the stimulus created jobs was lower than the percentage of americans who believed elvis was alive. at one point, i told a story how obama told his cabinet that this stimulus was the only thing less popular than he was in any case, when you put the words change and obama this close together you're going to get yelled at. and the new new deal, right wingers don't accept the old knew del and left wingers don't think this spineless sellout of a president is fit to share a book jacket with the new deal. so i had a feel something readers wouldn't get past the first four words, and i was right. a few weeks ago
important ohio or florida are and when those vote counts change. another very interesting thing we've done with this map center is load it full of different types of data that you can take a look at. for example, here are the electoral results in historical context. do you think tonight will be a landslide? it's nothing compared to 1972 where mcgovern got 17 electoral votes and nixon got 520. we also have, for example, unemployment data. you've seen the campaigns talk about unemployment over and over again. and what you can do on this map is go ahead and take a look. you can see california has 9.7% unemployment. nevada has 11.2%. florida has 8.6%. you can go dive in on a state-by-state level as well. finally we've also got a lot of demographic data in here. this, for example, is a breakdown as how the country looks by ethnicity. the more pink, the larger hispanic population. new mexico has 46%. texas has 37%. these are just some of the data sets. whether it's demographic or economic or historical or a little bit of context that you like from the newshour so much. we'll be back. >> ifill: w
. while mitt romney is very focused on florida and virginia, two states he must win to win the presidency. that brief pause for superstorm sandy seems like a distant memory. on the campaign trail, the attacks were back. >> the fair bet is on citizens. but what's casting my bet is on you. >> reporter: president obama is delivering his closing arguments. >> i know what change looks like because i fought for it. you have, too. and after all we've been through together, we sure as heck can't give up now. >> we're going to win on november 6th. i'll tell you that. >> reporter: he countered the president's closing argument. >> i believe that america finally needs real change as promised. we're going to give it to the american people. >> reporter: the latest abc news/"washington post" poll still shows a tight race. but three new polls in key battleground states has president obama on top. it's now all hands on deck. vice president biden stumped in iowa. >> the american people are asking themselves the question in these final days, who can they trust? >> reporter: bill clinton is working just as h
turning out. the president won the cuban vote. the first time infer florida. you saw young voters actually exceeding in most states their turnout from four years ago to the surprise of most analyst. you saw african turn out even though the excitement was four years ago, you saw a real determination there to support the president and you saw african-american rise in a lot of places. that is getting a lot of attention as it should. you have to understand electorate to understand presidential politics. but the president carried most of the key swush suburban counties t. states that are the four heaviest in white population the president won all four of them. so it may be convenient to say we drove good turnout in the latino and african-american community but it's more complex because the president won swing suburban voters and women voters all over the country. presidential campaigns are complicated t. pursuit of 270 electoral votes is complicated. how we won 332 is complicated. it's not just one thing and we'll talk a lot about what that means for politics going forward. one thing i've learn
on doors >> i think that is a good thing. the people in ohio, virginia, florida, nevada -- they took this election enormously seriously, understood the unique role they had to play. voters in battleground states understand they have a unique role a lot of us the citizens united to enjoy because they are not and state that will determine the president. >> the super pac's dynamic this time was obviously new and unprecedented. you had senate candidates -- sherrod brown in ohio had $40 million spent against him by super pac's. we had in the last week of our campaign $100 million spent against the president. that is more than the mccain campaign spent in its entirety. remarkable thing. a lot of senate candidates still one. but in house races it had an impact. barack obamashrod brown, governors -- ey have definition. the spending is a little less nefarious. it's still tough to deal with, but you are not somebody who is now and then somebody drops $4 million on youhead will have an impact. we have never seen spending like this. there is a term in politics called gross rating points, the amo
romney, he's hit four today, florida, virginia, ohio and new hampshire. if he wins those four and the other state we think he's going to win, that gets him at 270. they're both on their short path today to 270, hopeful pass. >> chuck, we've been hearing an awful lot about ground game, and enthusiasm. who has the edge? and which of those two matters the most? >> reporter: well, i think in this day and age when so many people vote, we don't have election day anymore, we have election month, essentially the month of october is when voting season begins. i think the ground game may mean as much or if not more and could trump enthusiasm. the romney people believe the old rules of politics apply to them. the candidate that has the more enthusiastic base of supporters, they'll be the ones that show up, the quote, walk on broken glass, show up to the polls no matter what the weather is. the obama campaign is very much based on metrics. they've identified -- they believe they've identified almost every one of their voters and trying to get them vote any day between october 1st or whate
